I woke to this sunrise from my bedroom window at 08.51 heralding a new, if freezing, day.
After we had fed the Icelandic horses their silage, I stayed out with a little camera to take photos of the icicles in the hill. I also made a small film.
The shapes made by the movement of the water with the low temperatures create fascinating little watery sculptures.
As ever, BeAnne came too. She likes my expeditions especially if they don’t involve either the horses/ponies in their field or the car. Sheep and chickens are fine, though.
Monster, on the other paw, is struggling with his inner demons.
He is enjoying the snow but, to his disappointment, remains still visible. He wants a full refund on his Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak.
Who knows what he is up to here. Was he a garage mechanic before he came to us?
Monster was determined to follow us walking calmly on the ice while I tried to find a safer, less-slippery route.
He even managed a little game with himself, pouncing and sliding on the sheet ice like a Disney film. It was very funny to watch. He is certainly a candidate for Dancing on Ice – yes, I am addicted (don’t judge me!)
The audience were bemused at Monster’s antics. Sheep are not good ice dancers.
Sunset today was at 15:42 so this was a bit before. Always beautiful.
Blimmin’ freezing, though.
